Dunno how it got to be so long, but oh, well. I’m not going to promise to get back blogging daily, but I’m losing interest in just doing champion dailies, while still really enjoying WoW in general.
Anyway, the reason I’m back today is the recent worgen thing going around. If it turns out there’s any truth to it, I WILL be renaming Znodis to something else and rerolling a Worgen hunter as my main. I’ve been in love with them since I first found the Howling Vale just exploring around in open beta. When I ran my first alt through Ashenvale, I got a screen shot of every panel of text for the quest chain for the Scythe of Elune. As you may have guessed by now, the story I was writing for the Bliz contest (mentioned in the last post) was about the worgen. But even before that I had been obsessing over them enough that I had enough material for a novel sized story. I stopped working on that when I heard they’d be reappearing in the Grizzly Hills (yes, before WotLK, that long ago), and didn’t want to waste time if what I had contradicted official lore.
So rather than trying to complete the story I made I thought I’d throw my back story out into the either before it’s completely contradicted (hopefully) with whatever happens in the next expansion. Who knows? Maybe some lazy bliz employee will read it, say that’s good enough for me, and make it official so he can slack off more. :) Interesting enough it involves the Malestrom, Emerald Dream, and the Well of Eternity.
What makes the worgen so ripe is the lack of any really official text about them at all. So let me introduce the questions I was working on and their answers (WARNING: None of this is official, just the background I developed for my stories)
